Lincoln’s 25 Hours in Gettysburg

Last evening, we had a talk here at Homewood at Plum Creek about Lincoln’s 25 hours in Gettysburg.  The talk was given by a local historian, Ray Kinard, on behalf of the Hanover Historical Society.  He is extremely knowledgeable about that period of time and gave a very informative presentation.

For the first time, I sat in the front row and made some pictures with my X100F camera.  In the past, I photographed from the rear of the audience and used longer focal length lenses.  Last evening, I wanted to make some further tests of using the effective 35mm lens of the Fujifilm X100F camera to record such events.  The first, uncropped image, was taken from my seat, and the second is a crop of the first image that has been resized.  For those who haven’t considered this way of making images, they might want to try it.  The advantages, at least for me, in using a non-zoom lens are going to be a big help in my photography.
